Virtual Tour of the Breuer House
Explore the history and restoration of the Marcel Breuer House, a mid-century model home first showcased at the Museum of Modern Art. Designed as a moderate-cost, expandable, and stylish family home by Bauhaus-trained Marcel Breuer for MoMA’s 1949 “House in the Museum Garden” exhibition, it was subsequently acquired by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and rebuilt at Pocantico as a guest house in 1950.
Below, watch our new virtual tour of the Breuer House, highlighting its iconic architecture, art, and furnishings. Then join tour guides Kimberly Miller of Greenrock Corporation and Katrina London of The Pocantico Center on February 9 for a lunchtime Q&A via Zoom about this marvelous sliver of architectural and design history.
